The Miami Heat Can’t Afford To Fail This Year
If LeBron James wants to play with his best friends for years to come, he needs to make sure they don’t fall short this year. The Miami Heat are head and shoulders the most talented team in the NBA. Their roster is boasted by 3 time MVP LeBron James, 2006 NBA Finals MVP Dwayne Wade and multiple all-star Chris Bosh. This is arguably the best roster since the 1998 Chicago Bulls (who went 72-10).
The problem is they haven’t been able to match talent with production. Two years now they’ve had this roster, and zero times have they topped the standings. They do havoc in the early rounds of the playoffs, but a blind squirrel finds a nut eventually. This team is too talented to fail again.
The door is wide open for the Miami Heat to get to the NBA Finals yet again. Derrick Rose fell to an ACL injury and their biggest potential threat is gone. The Boston Celtics struggle to stay healthy, and they are the last speed bump on the Heat’s way to the Finals. The problem for the Heat will be the West.
The San Antonio Spurs appear to be untouchable right now. They are on a 14 game winning streak going back to the end of the regular season. They made quick work of the Utah Jazz in the first round, and will get a battered Grizzlies or Clippers team come next Tuesday.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are the next talented roster compared to the Heat. The only difference is they seem to find a way to put it together late in games compared to the Heat. Kevin Durant is a cold blooded killer with the ball in his hands in a win or go home situation (just ask the Mavericks).
If the Miami Heat pull it together, no one can stop them. But if they falter yet again, someone is getting sent out. Pat Reilly will have no fear in shaking up this roster to make it better, even if it means shipping out one of the big 3.
